Here is what is written about Tom:
1803. THOMAS NEVIE of Minisink, . Y., (su];]).) s. of Johannes (1010), b. about 1722; ni., (before 1751), Rebecca (Sclioonhoven, or Kroni); d. about 1758. All that is certainly known of him is that the two following named children were baptised at Mahackemack and Minisink (Port Jervis) Dutch Church, Xew York, at dates stated. It is thought, however, that he is the same of whose death by the Indians the following account is given in Quinlan's "History of Sullivan co.", N. Y., (]). 3(M)- "During the b^rench and Indian War,the Gonsalus family suffered severel)- from the Indians, and one of them, (Samuel, the first white man wIkj was in the county). became famous as an Indian hunter and scout. In 'Notes of the Ancient History of Ulster co.', published in the New Paltz 'Times' of Mar. 10, 1865, it is alleged that Sam's Point, a well known feature of Shawangunk Mountain, was thus named in consequence of the following incident: "In September, 1758, a scalping party of Indians from the Delaware crossed the mountain to Shawangunk and killed Daniel Gitz, Grif Easton and a man named Neaffte. The country being alarmed, the savages hurried back, but on the mountain met Samuel Gonsalus, to whom they gave chase in order to capture him. He knew all the paths better than his pursuers, and hastening to the Point, leaped a rocky precijiice of some thirty or forty feet, where he believed he could break his fall amongst a clump of saplings, (probably cedars or hemlocks). He thus made his escape unhurt, and gave his name to the 'big nose of Aroskawasting.' '" Miss Alice H. Neafie of Goshen, N. Y., says concerning the above: "My father, General Neafie, remembers hearing this story in his childhood: That a party had started out to quell this uprising, and that they met and did battle with the Indians near Crawford's Leather Factory with the above result. I find nothing is known of the matter in New Paltz,
and there seems to be no knowledge of the author of the 'Notes on the Ancient History of Ulster Co.', written for the New Paltz 'Tiiues' of [865. The historian. E. M. Ruttenber of Newburg, tells me that this 'man named Neafiie' does not appear on the published military lists of Ulster co. at this period, although, as we know, there were
Neafies in Montgomery and .Shawangunk at an early date."
